Venise Verte du Marais Poitevin

  • MARAIS-MOUILLE-2--PIMP--Alain-Texier---2007-
  • CANARDS--Darri--2

2nd wetland in France after the Camargue, the Poitevin Marsh was born from the marriage of land and water, from the hard work of men. Its "Green Venice" is a true cathedral of greenery with its lacis of water paths populated with a rich flora and fauna. Its history is (ra)narrated by the boatmen of the docks. The House of the Poitevin Marsh of Coulon and the Ornithological Park of St-Hilaire-la-Palud are two useful sites to discover in order to enrich his knowledge of this "natural monument".
The action for the eco-tourism enhancement of the wet marsh is welcomed by the return in 2010 of the label "Great Site of France" at the Interregional Park of the Poitevin Marsh that joins thus other prestigious sites (Pont du Gard, Montagne Ste-Victoire, Puy-de-Dôme, etc.). In 2014, the Marais Poitevin became the 49th Regional Natural Park of France.
